Wilson Karaman

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Thomas Szapucki, Josh Bell, Aaron Judge, and Nick Neidert.

Prospect of the Day:

Thomas Szapucki, LHP, New York Mets (Short-Season Kingsport): 6 IP, 2 H, 13 K.
So there’s a right way to make your first professional start, and there’s probably a wrong way or 86, and there’s the next-level ballin’ than Szapucki did yesterday. A fifth-round prep arm last June, he dominated in ways Appy League lineups just aren’t accustomed to with a low-90s heater and 11-5 hook. Lauded for his projectability and arm strength heading into the draft, he’ll be a long burn on account of his age and customary mechanical rough edges, but that was one hell of an introduction.

The Stash List: 12th Edition, 2016

J.J. Jansons

The top two remain the same this week, but the top five welcomes an entrant who ranked outside last week's top 10.

For a refresher on the four types of players that are eligible for inclusion on this list, please see the first edition of the year to find out why players like A.J. Pollock, Michael Brantley, and Raisel Iglesias are not listed below.

Last week’s Stash List can be found here.

Dynasty Dynamics: Six Dynasty Prospects to Stash or Flip

4

Ben Carsley

Examining a half-dozen minor leaguers who might be worth grabbing in your leagues.

Three weeks ago I took a look at seven prospects you might want to grab in deep dynasty leagues to either trade or to build around. Time has passed, and now I have six different names for you. You may read more about the premise in the first installment here. Good day.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Yoan Moncada, Charlie Tilson, Tyler Glasnow, and Christin Stewart.

Prospect of the Day: Yoan Moncada, 2B, Boston Red Sox (Double-A Portland): 3-for-5, 2 R.
As a guy who likes to see prospects challenged, was it frustrating to see Moncada in the Carolina League for 60 days? You betcha. Do the Red Sox give even a smidgen of a hoot about my concerns? They do not. Moncada has been sensational in 2016, and if for some reason you didn’t think 2015 established him as one of the best prospects in baseball, this should do it. I doubt you see him contribute in 2016 unless there’s an injury to a certain scrappy second baseman in Boston, but I don’t doubt that he’s ready to make said contribution.

Five to Watch: Triple-A Hitters

5

Greg Wellemeyer

Examining a handful of bats who could soon be knocking on the big-league door.

Around this time last year, I started taking a look at prospects whose early-season performance had their dynasty stocks on the rise. While it’s awfully early to be diving into minor-league stat lines, it’s not an exercise completely devoid of merit. You may well miss more than you hit, but last year’s early-June leaderboard mining revealed prospects such as Jacob Nottingham, Trey Mancini, and Cody Reed as prospects whose value was changing dramatically.

I hope it goes without saying that you should always try to pair stat line scouting with actual reports if you can find the information. To that end, you should definitely be reading the amazing work done by our prospect team: daily minor league updates, Monday morning ten packs, eyewitness accounts, notes from the field, chats, mailbag Q&As. It’s quite staggering how prolific they are as a unit, and how much my dynasty game has improved by soaking it all in.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Scott Schebler, Stephen Tarpley, Cody Bellinger, and Joe Jimenez.

Prospect of the Day: Scott Schebler, OF, Cincinnati Reds (Triple-A Louisville): 4-for-4, 2 R, 3 2B. Schebler struggled in his month with the Reds, but he’s probably earned a chance at another promotion. He’s been much better since his Triple-A return, and while that should be the case, it’s still a promising development. There’s a chance for solid-average power from the left side, and the feel for hitting is good enough that the hit tool may be average, too. It’s probably a bench profile, but it’s something every club needs. Schebler absolutely has a chance to be a contributor to a good team in the coming years.

Notes on prospects who stood out over the weekend, including Ian Happ, Phil Bickford, Reynaldo Lopez, and Austin Meadows.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Ian Happ, 2B/OF, Chicago Cubs (High-A Myrtle Beach): 4-for-6, R, 3 2B, BB, CS.
When you consider that Happ was the ninth pick of last year’s draft and that he has a .410 OBP, for a system that is as prospect-crazy as any, he’s gone, dare I say, under the radar? There’s a chance every tool in his bag becomes above average, and I give him as good of chance for a plus hit tool as anyone from last year’s class—and yes, that includes the big three. Is he a future star? No. Is he a future regular? I’d bet at least some of my “reputation” on it.

Mark Anderson

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Sean Reid-Foley, Sandy Alcantara, Austin Meadows, and Joe McCarthy.

Sean Reid-Foley, RHP, Blue Jays (High-A Dunedin): 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R/ER, 3 BB, 12 K.
Word of Reid-Foley’s promotion trickled out during the day on Thursday, along with word that he was starting for Dunedin last night. That first start in High-A didn’t prove to have much of an adjustment, as Reid-Foley torched the opposition, allowing just two hits and striking out 12 while demonstrating just how electric his stuff can be when he’s on top of his game.

Wilson Karaman

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Rhys Hoskins, Osvaldo Abreu, Jharel Cotton, and Marcos Diplan.

Prospect of the Day:

Rhys Hoskins, 1B, Philadelphia Phillies (Double-A Reading): 3-4, BB, R, 2 2B, HR, 6 RBI, K.
Six RBI, whatever. But Hoskins is on some kind of a streak right now. Over his last 11 he’s hitting .447 with eight dingers powering a 1.064 slugging percentage. The power comes with some aggressiveness and swing-and-miss, but it’s looked awfully legit in the Eastern League.
